Red Poison is a cannabis strain derived from the combination of Green Poison and Pakistani landrace strain. The second component is the phenotype of Hindi Kush, so we can say Red Poison strain is a cross of Green Poison and Hindi Kush. Its THC content is from 16% to 19%. CBD takes only 0.31-0.69% of the products. The combination of terpenes includes such components:

  • Humulene
  • Terpinolene
  • Myrcene
  • Caryophyllene

Humulene is the dominant component - 0.42%, while the total terpenes content doesn’t exceed the 1.01% mark.

Red Poison Strain Physical characteristics

By physical characteristics, we mean visual features of the product and its dominant flavors. The looks of the Red Poison weed strain are quite different from other species - instead of common pale-green colors, it features dark red and violet hues.

The strain has a sweet taste but may also evolve pungent smells. This depends on the volume and combination of terpenes. Except for these dominant tastes, users might taste citrus as well.

Impacts and Usage

Euphoria is the most frequently reported feeling after using this cannabis strain. As a rule, this kush isn’t supposed to bring feelings of relaxation. Instead, it makes consumers uplifted, energetic, and talkative. Despite the experiences of the majority of users, we cannot say these effects are axiomatic for this strain. In very calm and tranquil conditions, users might get slippy.

Considering these features, we may say Red Poison is a good option for those who suffer stress or anxiety. Lack of appetite caused by depression might be masked by this weed as well.

The range of downsides of using this marijuana strain is quite similar to the side effects caused by other popular strains:

  • Dry eyes
  • Hunger
  • Dizzy
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Concern

Planting and Harvesting

Growers need to wait up to 71 days to harvest the plant. It’s longer than the harvest time for other strains, but the yield isn’t much better - 15 - 20 Oz/plant (~ 550 g/plant). If you want to grow it indoors, the expected yield is 1 - 2 Oz/Ft² (~ 400 g/m²). Either indoors or outdoors, the plant reaches not less than 30 inches in height.
